Welcome to the IMARC Book room. In this small internet library you will find some very interesting and helpful books. This little library is all about Methodism. If you are looking for Baptist and Pentecostal materials here, you will not find it. After all, this site is devoted Bible Believing Methodism.
There are three general classi -fications. The first is Doc- trinal. The second is Meth- odist Commentaries. Last is Historical and Topical.
Under the heading of Doc- trinal you will find an assorted collection of Methodist writers. Some writers are very well know such of Ralstons "Elements of Divinity" and Summer's theological writings. There are others that are not as popular, but very worth your while such as Fields "Handbook of Christian Theology," and so on. These writings defend the historic Methodist theological positions. They are certainly not like the popular Methodist writings today that either deny the Bible and Creation, or in a cowardice defend the faith.
Methodist Commentaries are just that. These are writings of Methodist scholars in times past. That being said, you can trust your souls with them. Featured here are Summers commentaries. These were created by a friend of Fundamental Wes- leyan Society and IMARC. They were give to us by his wife several years after his death. This then is then is in part some of the works of Mr. Sulu Kelly. They were freely given to us and we ask that you to freely give. There are also several commentaries that he did not do. There are links to other Methodist commentaries on other sites to make it complete.
The last is Historical and Topical. This is a happy hodge·podge of Methodist writings. Some you won't find anywhere else. Enjoy.
